Please join us for an afternoon and evening of creativity! We will begin with a tour of the renowned Epic Campus in Verona, Wi, followed by networking, food & beverages, and "Ignite Creativity" presented by Paula Kennedy, CMKBD (0.1 CEU)

The Epic Campus, home to several thousand employees of the medical software giant, is known for its collection of theme designed buildings and vast artwork collections. The latest addition is a Harry-Potteresque castle with accompanying  Hogsmeade style village. From its new 11,400 seat auditorium, buried in the side of a hill, to its realistic Farm campus, the tour is a delight for the eyes and senses.

6:00-7:00 "Ignite Creativity" presented by Paula Kennedy, CMKBD (0.1CEU)

  As a designer, how do you cultivate your creativity? What motivates and inspires you? Do you know if you are primarily right brain dominant or left brain dominant? Or are you in the middle? Once you feel inspired, how do you stay creative and innovative, even under stress? How should you nurture and protect this precious resource? This presentation will investigate where creativity originates, why it's important to designers, what blocks it and how to cultivate it, and how to make it work for you. You will walk away with tools and ideas to help you get started immediately.
